Cache-Control: public, max-age=1024000 Pharmacopoeia Extemporanea: Horse-dung Water

Horse-dung Water.

Take Brooklime, Water Cresses, Harts tongue each 3 handfuls; juicy Orange peels 3; Nutmeg 6 drams; succulent fresh Horse dung 3 pound; Whey 9 pints; juice of Scabions, Dandelion and Hyssop water, each 1 pint. Draw off the Water gently, in a cold Still, for in an Alembic (which used for expedition sake) they are apt to urge it with too much fire, and then the Water is not so pleasant.

'Tis used in Juleps, in the Pleurisy, Scurvy, and vagous Pains.
